His dad Mick owned The Sugar Hut in Brentwood and for a time Kirk worked for the club promoting nights there.
He released his autobiography Essex Boy in April 2013.
Kirk was a household name after his three years on Towie and Ex On The Beach, dating stars including Amy Childs, Vicky Pattison and Lauren.
When was Kirk Norcross on TOWIE?
Essex-born Kirk joined the TOWIE cast in 2010 and quickly established himself as a regular.
His story lines revolved around his love life and relationships with Amy Childs and Lauren Pope as well as his rocky relationship with his father.
Kirk famously had a falling out with co-star Maria Fowler who he described as “just an extra” when she tried to get involved in an argument between him and then ex-girlfriend Lauren.
He left after the third series aired but re-joined in series eight - before leaving again in series nine after claiming that it just wasn’t the same anymore.

Keen reality TV fans will have also seen Kirk on Celebrity Big Brother series nine.

However Kirk decided to take a step away from the limelight a few years later to live a more normal life away from the cameras.
